With all the avatars of people's pet dogs, I figured I should put up a photo of mine.

Me too! Of course, that might get me banned if I pointed out a mistake by Rocketpig.

Heh, I had my phone on Sunday's game. I thought it seemed a little odd that the game was so early.

Clete Thomas is leading off. Tonight's line up almost looks better if you read it bottom up.

Hmmm? Nailed it last night. The Clete Thomas renaissance is officially full-blown.

Quite an imposing set of numbers.

What happened to Florimon's numbers? I know they are diminishing, but have they totally disappeared. Aside: All it took was Dickbert to comment that Florimon's numbers had consistently stayed between .240 & .260 for him to exceed .260 for a day and now slide to their current level. .228 BA with a .635 OPS.

Another thought: Justin Morneau has the fifth best slugging percentage of today's starting lineup. He has a higher SLG% than Parmelee, Thomas, Dozier, and Florimon (aka Murder's Row).

Clete Thomas's given first name is Michael. Some folk won't go by a middle name of "Clete", but then again, some folk'll. Let that sink in.

And Clete still doesn't have a hit in this game. Bad choice of a leadoff hitter.

No-Drama Deduno in the first. Can't possibly remain that way, can it?
